her graduation recital, Linda Wadsworth is given a string of pearls
by her grandfather, J. H. Wadsworth. Linda runs away from home to Boston.
She is taken off the train in the small town of Hammettsville, where
she quickly attains a job at one of her grandfather's stores, under
the alias of Laura Weston.
She later falls for Roy Connors the co worker. Linda sells her gold
bracelet to a soldier for one dollar, but Roy and sales-clerk Sandra
think she is stealing when she keeps the dollar instead of placing it
in the cash register. Realizing that her grandfather is on his way to
Hammettsville, Linda attempts to run away again, but Roy, still thinking
that she is a thief, catches her and insists that she turn herself over
to the police, thinking that she can hide from her grandfather in jail.
J. H. stills manages to find her, but, discovering what a great success
she has been, he agrees to let her live her own life. On her eighteenth
birthday, Linda joins the Women's Ambulance Corps, and at a party in
her honour, Roy gives her a coded messaged that reads "I Love You".
